without a moisture meter there really is not way to tell and the only way to go about it is to guess based on thickness of wood and how long it has been stickered in current location – 1 year per inch thickness, I would probably go over just to be on the safe side.

as for QS vs plain sawn, while QS is a “more stable” material this only refers to the fact that it will be subjected to less pronounced seasonal movements (movements will be smaller), but it still needs to dry properly as it can still warp somewhat during drying process at which case your project could be twisted out of square
